About Simowatto
Joined November 2014
I'm Simon, looking to enhance myself through the power of online business.Some time ago disaster hit and turned my life upside down in mere minutes. I'm overly liked, happy go lucky kind of chap who has become frustrated and disillusioned with all the internet self-help and e-biz ideas. I have wasted a lot of my valuable money, really hoping that this grows my end line and brings me the comforts I feel I deserve.

I was expecting that this WA "thing" was going to be another overwhelming thing like all of the others things I've tried. To my utter delight, I am slowly uncovering that it is not and I am loving it.

As time has gone on I am now building the foundations for a very successful website. I could not have done it without the WA training and support from everyone in chat. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, really I do. :) A special thanks go out to Alan Hocking who has bestowed upon me some very helpful tips and guidance.

What happened:

My day began very regularly and then I had a simple slip in the garden and a whacked my head causing me to be hospitalized, where I fell into a coma, lost the ability to walk, move my right arm and be whole. I had two blood clots removed from my brain and since this day, not a day that goes by I'm not reminded.

I plunged in with this WA and am hoping for the best. :) as this is something I can totally do with my abilities. If anyone is looking for a little assistance here let me know and I'll help out! I have a newly organized FB page too. :)

On the right-hand side of this profile feel free to look and show your support! for my sites and pages,

take care,
. Simon.

Thank you Simon for you generous offer. And I wish a quick recovery.

I am afraid to ask you one thing about my website. I have done everything good so far except that I ca not see website itself as whole. When I press the button to see it, it takes me to the Dashboard or somewhere else. I already finished lesson 9 though but I have this problem which is buggling me.

I wish all the best.

when it takes you to the dashboard click on the name of your site in the top left of it mate :)

Has it been that long? You have a lot of friends and you help them one and all. You inspire me too. You do not wallow in sympathy and I do not either. That is why I am here at WA. Got to keep our brains working. I am old a can qualify for a senior independent living. They help a lot there, even help clean the home. Do you have anything like that? Another help is the necklace or bracelet you wear and can call for help. Cost too much for me. Anyway, I have not been seeing you until now. The others sound like they missed you too. Here's to you that you double your friendships.

I came across your profile now. I've wasted valuable money and am still regretting...

Or rationalizing the online purchases - 'they are valuable... and I got what I paid for.'

I see, I'm not the only one, and it's high time I move ahead with life and learn from everyone here.

Hi, Simowatto, thank you for following me and I have done the same for you.

You have had some horrible things happen to you but you are picking yourself up and making the best of it!

That is what winners do! That is what people who know what they want and will try not to let anything get in their way! that is what learners, helpers and teachers do!

That is what I try to do, so let's get together if there is anything I can help you with.

Hey Simon... just noticed you as I was cruising by chat and that you were mistaken for an Aussie! Made me smile because I am one... although living in Canada. Anyway, just decided to say "hi" and congrats on making a success of things! Need to keep on keeping on here myself and hope to change my life and live my interests too.

Hi Simon,
I've taken your advice and am now your new stalker. Kidding - that came off sounding sort of creepy but was meant in jest. I'll have to get a note pad to keep up with all of the acronyms but look forward to learning from your example.

Simon, how old were you when this all happened. I was walking, in the beginning and at 2 1/2 years old had climbed into the hay mow of the barn on our farm. I was close to my dad and was going to throw hay or straw down and had even taken my pitchfork, with the broken handle and was going to throw it down a small chute (hole, in the floor, with a sliding door, to close it). Since I was little, I couldn't reach the switch to turn on the light and even though there was light coming in from an open doorway, where hay and straw were blown into the barn, I began walking through the semi-darkness, but being as dark as it was didn't see the hole, until I fell through. I ended up falling about 7-8 feet, to a bare concrete floor and was unconscious for several hours, not sure how long, nobody told me. When I woke up, I was unable to walk, only crawl, then the muscles, in my hips tightened up and my legs could no longer be straightened out. I ended up in University Children's Hospital, in Madison Wisconsin, where they diagnosed it as Polio. I went through quite a few operations, to fix some of the results, of the Polio, but have always used braces and crutches. The Polio epidemic was just winding down, after the vaccine was found, but I guess I already had it. My older brother caught it too, but was able to get over it and only has a limp right now. He is not physically disabled. Since I have dealt with this all my life, I have learned to deal with it and although I get upset, at times, because I can't do something, I usually don't let it bother me. The main thing is I have my mind and able to use my arms & hands, so am happy to be here at WA and building websites. When I got Polio, it was in the mid 1950's. When I got my power chair I had to have a physical therapist analyze my limitations, to prove I needed the chair. She told me I probably had a spinal injury and it was not truly Polio, but with the Polio epidemic, they just assumed it was polio. They probably weren't too familiar with spinal injuries back in the 1950's, in north central Wisconsin. The main thing is, my legs are pretty much normal, whereas someone with Polio, they are spindly and like skin over bone. Glad to meet you. We have to stay in touch. I eventually want to work it somehow, where disabled people can share solutions they have found, because of their disability, which will give others knowledge of how they can resolve a problems they are having.

I see you often on chat, always helping others, very often with insightful stuff—don't worry, I'm not keeping count, lol! When I see you in there, or a few others, I know people are in good hands; and therefore, most of the time I won't pop in. Never would I have guessed your story, laid out here for us all. Never in a million years.

Indeed you are an inspiration and can use your experience to inspire others who've had accidents that have changed their life. I suspect you are doing just that.

Keep up the great work. I'm honored for the follow.

Because after all, that is my main goal in being here.

ooh no i do not have that. I guess I need to check into that. Any quick direction-pointers to tell me where I do that? I sure do appreciate it.

And excellent on the income part! I'm currently unemployed so I have time to sit and do this stuff -- at least until I get to the point where I HAVE to go out and find a paycheck! But I'm ok for now....

Hi Simon, thanks for the follow. I like and appreciate your site, due to the fact my sister is also wheelchair bound, and has been for several years now. I'm not sure how much of your advice she can utilize, but I get the need for your niche. She has Ataxia, a neurological disease that has mutilated much of her motor skills and has limited her ability to eat most solid foods. Still, I will send her and her husband your way-perhaps they can get something out of it. Good luck to you!

Hello Simon, I am new to WA. I read your profile and I am very impressed. I am sorry about your accident but thank god that you pulled out it and came back. You sound like a person that doesnt give up and I encourage you to be positive with everything that you do. I sometimes get downabout my life too.l But I guess I dont have a right to do that because Im not as disabled as you are. I do have some health problems that prevent me from working a normal job so thats why I want to be successful with WA. Hope we talk again. Have a great day. Elizabeth

Heya Simon...I thought I was following you already, my bad. Wow you have quiet a few websites up. It seems you've really been following the training and know Wordpress very well. I may need to call upon your expertise in that area! I'm Wordpress illiterate at this stage.

Keep plugging away at it all and never give up. 1-2 years google starts to really take more notice of your sites. Yeah, I know it's a drag! but hopefully will pay $$$$ in time. Good luck my friend.

You don't know me from Adam but we have Wayne Stewart in common and probably a few others as well.

I applaud you for your perseverance here at WA and not letting your "Limitations" get in the way of your success. I find that very encouraging. I figure, if people like this can make this work then I, with no real limitations except myself, can do this. Therefore, I will be following you and your progress.

All the best to you in you journey.

Excellent profile, and my prayers are with you, Simon. My wife went through a very tragic event in our journey, and we daily are reminded of how easy it can be to take things for granted. She is walking, but I assure you it was by a miracle. C5 & C6 is complete paralysis, and everyone in her wing at St. Anthony's in Denver, Colo were in wheelchairs. It is difficult as well on the receiving end of a miracle to receive it. Am thankful to know that you found a home here, and I believe you will do well. Once again, am thankful to have you in my Network.
